Low Water - No problem!
We have had a lot of questions about how the low water affects our sailings. Generally speaking, it does not. The Prairie Lily draws about three feet of water and the river is deep enough for us to sail. Our turn around point is about the water treatment plant, which is a little short of where we usually turn, but still makes for a lovely cruise. Join us!
